How Canada will regulate legal cannabis: A flowchart

Marijuana Will Not Be Legal In Quebec Until September featured image

Although the proclamation date was originally projected to be in September, Trudeau said that the extra month was requested by some of the "big" provinces - particularly Quebec to ensure that regulations are in place by the time Canadians can legally light up.

Medical marijuana has been legal in Canada since 2001, and in response to popular opinion, the Liberal Party committed to legalizing it for personal use during the elections of 2015.

Canada is the largest developed country to end a nationwide prohibition on marijuana use. In the neighboring USA, nine states and the District of Columbia now allow for recreational marijuana use, and 30 allow for medical use. California, home to one in eight Americans, launched the United States' biggest legal marijuana marketplace on January.

Marijuana use remains illegal for people younger than 18, and no individual can possess more than the equivalent of 30 grams of dried cannabis.

THE Canadian parliament has passed a bill to legalise the use of cannabis in a recreational capacity.

Like statewide legalization in the United States, it'll be a while before people can just walk into a shop and order up a nice eighth.

Trump to meet Queen Elizabeth on UK visit, says US envoy
Britain's longest-serving monarch, who is now 92 years old, has met with nearly all serving USA presidents during her reign. Trump has always been a controversial figure in Britain and has called into question the state of U.S.

Bill C-46, a companion bill that Wilson-Raybould predicts will give Canada the strongest impaired-driving rules in the world, is also expected to be passed in the next day or two by the Senate. Transformative social policy, I think.

The move by Canada is likely to cause a headache south of the border, and twist an already strained relationship with the current U.S. government. Trina Fraser, a cannabis business specialist at Brazeau Seller Law, said New Brunswick is almost ready to start stocking its store shelves, for example, while B.C. hasn't even started accepting applications for licenses to operate private stores.

Nationwide legalization is a good thing.

On Twitter, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau praised the bill and focused on Canada's youth. Jodie Emery - a cannabis activist who frequently voices her disapproval of the government's current legalization plan - told CTV that the change doesn't decriminalize marijuana in the way she and many other activists would like to see. But some health experts have anxious that the lower age will encourage use of a substance that can have long-term consequences on still-maturing brains.

Conservative Senator Larry Smith chastised the government for "failing to educate" children about the dangers of cannabis use ahead of legalisation.

Once the law takes effect in October, adults (of varying ages depending on the province) can legally purchase cannabis, cannabis oils and extracts, live cannabis plants and seeds, and cannabis-infused foods.
